The Ruff & Reddy Show is an American animated/live-action variety television series produced by Hanna-Barbera Enterprises for NBC's Saturday morning children's programming. It ran from 1957 to 1960, airing 50 episodes that spanned three seasons. It went into syndication from 1962 to 1964.

Each episode was presented by Jimmy Blaine, who introduced three or four Ruff and Reddy segments, along with two shorts from Columbia Pictures' Screen Gems. In its syndicated form, Blaine was replaced with Captain Blob played by Bob Cottle, who did his own skits and presented reruns of Ruff and Reddy.

The series has yet to have a complete series DVD release from Warner Archive Collection, who confirmed that the masters are in rough condition, and in need of a lot of remastering work.
